Dancer Claims Abuse Over Increasing Bust Size

March 22, 2006 ( - A dancer is suing the owners and producers of the Broadway musical "Movin' Out" for more than $100 million in damages on grounds that she was emotionally abused and fired after her bust grew too large for her costumes.

Reuters reports that Alice Alyse says she was dismissed from the cast of the show last month after her bust grew from cup size C to D while she was recovering from an injury.

Her suit lists charges including wrongful termination, breach of contract, defamation, sexual harassment and intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to Reuters.

Alyse, who is in her 20s, said the change of cup size occurred naturally as her body matured. She denied any big weight gain and said she kept fit while recovering from a toe injury suffered when she was dropped by a fellow dancer from six feet in the air. Alyse said when she returned to the show her costumes still fit her everywhere except in the bust.

Alyse’s lawyer said in the news report that a stage manager who was the “main perpetrator” of the alleged abuse flew into a rage after learning of Alyse’s changing bust size, and the dancer feared bodily injury.
